Hello thought i might mash everything which i have seen players request or talk about into one feel free to leave comments on these matters.

Servers
-
Reset the "Prisons" server and make a list of possible things you are going to add/implement/remove and get community feedback on how it should be made as Prisons lasted about a week or 2 until it died i believe if Prisons is revamped properly and how the community wants it it'll be a lot more profitable for Skycade and a lot more enjoyable for players as they will be willing to spend money on the server to keep its upkeep.
- Remove "Kitmap" and make a Kitmap as a event after the purge at the end of every factions map which lasts for 1-2 weeks and possibly in replace of Kitmap bring back OP-Factions as i know that actually had active players these days Kitmap is more like that game-mode which no one remembers from Season 5 which was a horrible idea and got cancelled after like a month basically Kitmap is dead bring back OP-Factions as it-ll be profitable as people will actually play it.
- Invest in a cannon test server so that players can test cannons on Skycade instead of on a server such as Oneshot and this server is only accessible to people who have proved to Staff they can cannon to avoid abuse of the server and still allows people to test Skycade's cannoning limits while in a safe environment + it will also help you guys with how cannons work and possibly help optimise cannoning on the server :) (I said optimise not fix just remember BD)

Factions
-
Nerf the economy specifically towards Cactus as you said you nerfed it but well its how everyone made their millions.
- Fix the general lag when cannons are firing or even when the server has max players online
- Disable Regens like most Factions servers do then people will have to be active to make sure they are not getting raided instead of going offline with the chance that the cannon wont bust the Regen. Essentially just disable em so people have to be actively playing to defend and it will make cannoning a lot easier and make cannons easier so therefore more raiding and more competition.
- Make the TNT limit for cannons 1500
- Add "Outpost" as a permanent event so Factions are always trying to keep it captured such as the Outpost gives you say a 1.5x increase in sell profits for iron golems for example meaning all the Factions on the server who use Iron Golems will be trying to capture it and sell they're profit before it gets captured again. (https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/outpost-premium-1-8-x-1-12-x-under-recode.38657/)
- Increase the Hopper limit to 128 and add a feature so you can possibly check how many Hoppers are in a chunk
- Add Proper Cannoning rules (Will add a example of rules myself and a cannoner made (Wino))
- Add KB Sticks so we can hit Creepers obviously add a way so that they cannot be used against players only Creepers

- Make 25 man factions and 2 allies if you do the above suggestions the server will actually be a active competition server and people will actually fill 25 man Factions. or even get rid and make it no allies so its a free for all with all the factions to heavily increase competitiveness and raiding
- Ban Senior Moderators+ From playing the server in a faction that is on /f top 1 this will avoid Staff bias between the Factions which has been seen with high ranking Staff purposely ignoring players from enemy Factions when they need help Senior Moderator+ is being nice personally it should be like SaicoPvP where no Staff are allowed to be in a Faction.

KitPvP
-
Make the Kit refresh command 1500 coins not 2500 coins to make it fair for newer players.

SMP
- Fix the portal at spawn to actually go to the mining world
- Increase the total amount of claim blocks that are available to users
- Fix the bug that allows you to fly in other worlds
- Add some crates like the Mystery Crates to SMP with items that would be useful for SMP or rare items in SMP

- Possibly add a tutorial section when people first join SMP to explain how to play SMP and use its functions this will reduce people having to askin chat how to play instead they learn how to play from the server itself!
- Add Cactus to the shop in SMP if it is not added yet
- The suggestions above were from @TessieBear76 now moving on to suggestions from other SMP players
- Add Ender Pearls to the shop for selling
- Make a shop sign so you can just sell your entire inventory instead of selling one stack at a time and so on

- Also so you do not have to have 64 of a item to sell at the shop you can have however many you want and it will figure out the price and sell it
- Add other items to the shop eg wood
- Add more homes
- Implement a way so you can have chests public but still in a users claim
- Make it so you can trust people in only certain parts of your claims kind of like owner claims on Factions

- Make a way so you can Teleport to your claims as a lot of new players do not set homes at their claims

Network
-
Change or at least modify the Anti-cheat for different settings on Different servers so that it is optimised for each different Server. Also if it is not already make it so say someone is using Kill-aura on Factions it notify's a Staff member on SMP so they can come check it out. Or even try using a different anti-cheat and configuring that and seeing if it works better its not a matter of "no it wont work AAC (Advanced Anti-Cheat) is the best paid etc etc" its more a "Hey we might as well give it a try testing out a new anti-cheat to see if we get better performance with equal detection of players" at least try to make it better you have to discover not go off prices
- Change the server location back to North America (was in Canada)
Firstly the server being in Europe, Germany not only gives Australians a incredibly horrible ping and connection but also makes any Australian Staffs footage for punishments very questionable.
Secondly the rough ping estimations for each of the 4 major regions of the world are as follows these connections look very one sided and unfair for a majority of the world.
Rough Ping Estimations on European Server.
Oceania (Australia): 300-450ms
North America: 150-250ms
South America: 200-400ms
Europe: 5-80ms

Thirdly here is a rough ping estimation of connections from the 4 Major regions if the Server was hosted in around Central United States of America.
Rough Ping Estimations on Central USA Server.
Oceania (Australia): 200-300ms
North America: 5-100ms
South America: 175-275ms
Europe: 120-220ms

As you can clearly see having a server hosted in the Central USA is much fairer for anyone within the 4 major regions in the world with all the locations having connections which are relatively playable as you know i am a Australian player and would be very happy to get anywhere near just below 300ms
I do not see why the Staff even moved the server to Europe and Germany in the first place when clearly the USA was essentially the fairest for everyone yes i know what happened with OVH but i am sure you could have found a new hosting company that could host the server within the USA if you wish to debate this feel free in the reply's section as i will be more than happy to talk about this with anyone especially Staff.
- Add a one time ReCaptcha on the server for the very first log in off a user to confirm they are not a bot this will prevent Bot Attacks this can be done by showing on someones very first join and if they pass it they never have to do it again if they fail within say 30 seconds they get kicked from the server and when they rejoin they have to do it again till they can confirm it is a actual person doing the ReCaptcha and ill prevent Bots from even getting past Hub (https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/captcha-50-off-beta-version.36057/)

Discord
- Add Mee6 as a Auto Moderation in the discord to delete Spam, Chat flood and swearing within the server it takes no effort to setup and would take at most 10 minutes to setup including adding permissions for Staff.
- Add a way for users to skip songs on the auto-play in case a rubbish song comes up which no one wants to hear but add the DJ Permission so
that players cannot add songs of their own

Ranks
- Give ranks the ability to have a Bold "OOF" in chat

Cannon Rules
No left or right shooting allowed
No Roof cannoning allowed above y:255
No Overlay Cannons allowed
Autos are not allowed a player must be at the cannoning shooting it manually
all nuking types allowed at any Y-level
You cannot use more than 2 cannons during a raid
Midairs are allowed
No wall removers allowed

Thankyou for reading

All these are practically good ideas, prisons should be reset and made less confusing. Make it a normal OP prison without books, enchantment vials or all of the custom items really.

I don’t really like 25 man fac 2 allies. It just ends up being really messy with usually one of the factions on f top being left if number 1 and 3 ally it sorta just kills them. This might be different now OPfac has gone and there are plenty of factions.

A big issue which needs sorting is glitching and somehow I don’t know how possible it is but for VPN evading to be fixed and made harder. Rn being perm banned means nothing really as many players just use a vpn and evade and play

they should make kitmap a permanent game mode because it was fun when it was a thing. i don't know thats just my opinion.

also it wouldn't be good to have a recaptcha. its rare bots come on the server and it would be quite useless. also adding it would make skycade feel like a cracked server.

it is a permanent gamemode and its a dead gamemode hence why im trying to get it removed and made a event after each factions seasons as itll be more enjoyable that way

VPN Evasion is hard to fix as most people use good VPN services so that isnt very plausible the 2 allies things was just my own little thing but the 25 man thing needs to happen us at nuggets we were rotating around a a extra 10-20 players if skycade add outpost etc and add more things to make it more enjoyable 25 man facs will be good as there will be bigger fights bigger raids and bigger events :) also updated the allies amount part :)

Kit map is fun but only when factions is down, thats the only time kitmap has and will ever have a player count over 20. And factions only take a week to reset. Last reset it was instantly. Its so inconsistant with players it would be better for it not to exist at all IMO.

exactly having it as a event after the end of the world rather than a permanent gamemode would make it a lot more enjoyable

Well for one I think they should fix the portal at spawn to actually go to the mining world because that’s been down for as long as I remember
Also maybe increase the total amount of blocks you can get? I know people can own multiple pwarps and it isn’t exactly fair for people who do not to have enough claim blocks
Also, fix the bug that makes you able to fly in other worlds, make it so you’re just able to fly in build world
Also, I would like to see crates for smp (not just voting crates) cuz all the other game modes have them, but we don’t, and we’re literally one of the biggest communities on the server
Idk what they would include, but still
Also maybe a little tutorial section at spawn for new players? That teaches people how to claim and do shop chests etc, because I always see people in chat asking for how to do those things
Also I would like to see cactus get added to the smp shop because I’m pretty sure we can’t sell that yet
Ok these are from other players:
Add ender pearls to the shop for selling!
Make shop signs so you can just sell your whole inventory
Also so you don’t have to have 64 of something to sell it at the shop
Maybe more homes as well?
Add other things to the shop that you can buy and sell ex: wood
Make it so you can makes chests public but still be in a claim
Make it so you can trust people in only part of your claim
Also make it so you can tp to your claim because a lot of new players don’t set homes
Also this isn’t just for smp but people think that ranks should get a bold OOF as well
Thanks for reading this took a while to type oof
(Also my discord is Tessīe#4072 if anyone wants to chat with me a bit more about these)

Make 25 man factions and 2 allies
This to me seems like it can get very messy quickly. Either having a low count and 2 allies or high count and 1 / no allies would seem better to me.

Everything else seems fine, I'd love to see some of this get implemented

personally id prefer high count and no allies but im open for any ideas which the community wants and hopefully this thread can gain traction throughout the staff team and playerbase for any ideas that should be implemented network wide or across all the gamemodes then everyone has a voice if you can spread the link itll help a lot with bringing the community's ideas to skycade as it should be :)

Don’t play factions too much but I would be glad too see this implemented
Having too many people and 2 allies would just make things go out of control
Maybe like 20 man factions and 2 allies? Idk

Yeah add OP back take away kitmap awful gamemode to keep. OP had more players playing and thats when skycade had set the newest player record factions and opfacs usually got 100-250 players on each because they prefered pvp the eco ect on the different servers.
I like 15 man tbf, they should introduce 2 allies again but only 15 man.
